Want something for powder. Currently have nordica enforcer 93s in 193cm as my all mountain/powder ski. Want something wider for deeper days. 193cm is minimum length, I would consider a 200cm ski if anyone made them. I like the enforcer 93, could be a bit stiffer and the 193 length is good. 21+ radius. prefer 25-29


So long, stiff, and wide. Prob around 115mm.

blizzard bodacious are on sale for $330 in 193cm. they stiff enough?

was also looking at black crows amiga in 194cm. they look good but some people say tips and tails are soft?

Faction Prime 4.0 194cm look like perfect skis for me but im not paying $1200

Volkl confession 193cm. Look good, idk.

blizzard spur 192cm look cool but not paying $1,100

There is a Liberty Gnome in 194 cm that is 140 wide. That should float almost anyone. The skis in my picture are 191 cm, 142mm wide. They float me at 240 lbs.

ooh 202. 110mm waist width. a little on the narrower end of what I'm looking for but maybe the length makes up for it

I'd like to know where you plan on skiing these, and a bit more about you as a skier....size might help. Howmany truly deep powder days a season you actually do ski....not hope to ski, etc.

To be blunt, this is a category that MANY people really overshoot the mark on, IME.

I skied a pair of those 202s on Tuesday. They were really fun. The Fischer 115 in 196cm sounds pretty serious. Apparently, the athletes call it "The Truth", think Jack Nicholson.

I demoed the Rustler 11 in 192cm length (116mm wide in that length) and its an awesome powder ski that can still handle firmer conditions. Its a charger and pretty burly but accesible.

Also demoed the Black Crows Anima in 188.4cm (115mm wide) and its a beast, definitely a charger. It is available in 194.4cm length. But if the 188 is pretty burly I cant imagine the 194.

I own a pair of Moment Deathwish in 190cm (112mm wide) and really like them. They can charge and just eat up powder and crud but are pretty accesible. They were the only ski I owned last season.

Faction Prime 4.0 is going to be a noodle for you I'm guessing, especially in the tips.
